Life on the street molds emotional athletes.Three years ago, her brother’s death marked the beginning of Kendra’s new life, an existence with no home, no family, and no friends. Time in the underground byways toughened her emotional shell with the loose association of like-minded street rats where survival meant compromise and constant vigilance.

Before he died, Billy had sent her a package in care of his teammate, Conner. For Kendra, re-entrance into polite society comes with a deadly price, as betrayal comes from both sides of the grave.

Conner Crofton owns the BDSM club Ambrosia. After failing to protect his teammate on their last covert mission, penance takes form as a promise to safeguard Billy’s little sister, a girl he’d unknowingly remanded to a world of darkness and uncertainty, deception and psychopathic stalkers.

The past will always haunt us. Each must earn forgiveness and trust as passion, guilt, deception, and betrayal, interweave a destiny formed long ago. A romantic suspense with a twist.

Carnal Obsession: His Heart’s Prisoner is a romantic thriller from Author Reily Garrett. It is the fourth book in a series and a complete standalone. Each book is dedicated to one of the four Crofton brothers and Carnal Obsession: His Heart’s Prisoner is Connor’s story.

The story begins 3- years after Connor’s best friend, Billy, died in battle.  Before his death, he sent important information that he gathered on a secret mission.  Billy’s wish was for Connor to keep the information safe for his sister Kendra.  Kendra was so upset finding out about her brother death that she ran away from home. Three years later, Connor locates Kendra and invites her band to play at his BDSM club.   When he sees her, he is shocked to see how much she has grown up.  There is so much sexual tension between them, but Connor fights it… thinking he is too old.  Connor protects Kendra when several people threaten and hurt her to get the information. How long can Connor continue to fight his attraction to Kendra while protecting her?

The story line kept me intrigued, but I felt that the author should have focused more on Connor and Kendra’s relationship.  The story focused mainly on the envelope and keeping Kendra safe.  Even though the story is labeled erotic, there is only a couple of sexual scenes.  I would label this a beginner level erotic story.

Overall, a good read.

a West Coast girl transplanted to the East Coast. Past employments as an ICU
nurse, private investigator, and military police officer has given her a host
of different environments to add a real world feel to her writing.
her kids are her life, writing is her life after. The one enjoyed…after the
kids are in bed or after they’re in school and the house is quiet. This is the
time she kicks back with laptop, surrounded by her shepherds, to give her
imagination free rein.
life, hobbies can come and go according to our physical abilities, but you can
always enjoy a good book. Life isn’t perfect, but your imagination can be.
Relax, whether it’s in front of a fire or in your own personal dungeon. Take
pleasure in a mental pause as you root for your favorite hero/heroine and bask
in their accomplishments, then share your opinions over a coffee with your best
friend (even if he’s four legged). Life is short. Cherish your time.
